PHILADEPHIA (AP) — Freshman Owen Zalc made a game-winning 37-yard field goal in overtime and Dartmouth beat Pennsylvania 23-20 on Saturday in an Ivy League opener for both teams.
The Dartmouth defense forced a fourth-and-6 for Penn with 1:03 left in regulation. The Quakers elected for a long field goal and Albert Jang drilled a 51-yarder to tie it at 20-all.
The defense came up big again in overtime as Penn didn’t gain a yard on its possession of overtime and Graham Gotlieb missed a 42-yard field-goal attempt.
Dartmouth (2-1) avenged a double-overtime loss to Penn (2-1) last season.
Nick Howard threw for 74 yards and a touchdown for Dartmouth, and he carried it 19 times for 58 yards and another score. Zalc was named the Ivy League rookie of the week after contributing 10 points last week against Lehigh.
Aidan Sayin was 36 of 55 for 357 yards and two touchdowns for Penn. The Quakers lost three fumbles in the first half.
